Abstract

Methods and devices provide for temporary partial aortic occlusion to achieve diversion of blood flow to the brain in patients suffering from cerebral ischemia. The device includes an expandable frame and membrane that is inserted into the aorta to partially occlude blood flow.

Description

DIVERSION DEVICE TO INCREASE CEREBRAL BLOOD FLOW

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates generally to devices and methods for providing temporary partial obstruction of aortic blood flow, with a resulting increase in cerebral blood flow. More particularly, the invention provides a device with a membrane for partially occluding an artery.

BACKGROUND

Stroke is a disruption of blood to a portion of the brain. The two main mechanisms are occlusion of a blood vessel (ischemic stroke) or hemorrhage of a blood vessel (hemorrhagic stroke). Ischemic stroke is significantly more common. Current state of the art treatment for ischemic stroke includes the injection of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) within four hours of the event. Some evidence also points to a benefit from tPA out to 12 hours. Alternate therapies include mechanical dislocation or retrieval of the clot. These treatments are effective because the brain has significant collateral blood flow. Thus, when the primary blood supply to an area is disrupted, collateral flow provides some amount of oxygen to the affected tissue. The quantity is dependent on the size of the vessel obstructed, the location of the obstruction, blood oxygen level, and cerebral blood flow volume. The model for this situation is an area of dead tissue (infarction) that is dead and unrecoverable. Surrounding this tissue is the penumbra; a zone of oxygen depleted tissue. This tissue ranges from dying tissue through tissue experiencing insignificant oxygen level drops. Clearly within this continuum there exists tissue that is not dead but is not functioning due to oxygen deficit. Stroke intervention is thus intended to recover as much of the penumbra as possible, limiting the amount of tissue killed in the brain.

One solution to increasing the effectiveness of treatment is to increase the amount of oxygen delivered via collateral blood flow. Unlike some parts of the body, increasing blood pressure does not generally increase flow to the brain. A solution proposed in US Patent No. 6,743,196, to Barbut et al., is to insert a balloon into the aorta to partially occlude the aorta above the renal arteries as a means of increasing cerebral blood flow. Limitations of this device and method include mechanical complexity, constant monitoring requirements, and maintaining arterial access for the length of its use. Additionally, an inherent drawback with using a balloon to occlude a vessel is that balloons are always susceptible to failure (e.g., popping, leaking).

A device that is to be placed in an artery must address additional concerns compared to devices placed in veins because of the hemodynamic differences between arteries and veins. Arteries are much more flexible and elastic than veins and, in the arteries, blood flow is pulsatile with large pressure variations between systolic and diastolic flow. These pressure variations cause the artery walls to expand and contract. Blood flow rates in the arteries vary from about 1 L/min to about 5 L/min.

A need exists for a less complex, easily delivered, temporary arterial occlusion device that partially occludes an artery to increase cerebral blood flow, while avoiding the drawbacks of the prior devices. An associated filter that captures embolic material would be advantageous as well.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The present invention provides devices and methods for temporarily increasing cerebral blood flow. More specifically, a vascular occlusion, obstruction and/or constriction device is disclosed. The terms occlusion, obstruction, and constriction are used interchangeably herein to refer to partial or complete blockage of a vessel, and to any of the devices that provide such blockage. The devices include an occluding, obstructing, or constricting mechanism. In some embodiments, the devices include a filtration mechanism to trap emboli. The devices are collapsible and expandable to facilitate insertion into and removal from the vessel.

In one embodiment, the device includes an expandable frame with a membrane mounted on a first portion of the frame. The membrane has at least one opening. In some embodiments, the membrane has an outer region and an inner region, and an opening in the inner region. In use, the frame expands to conform to the inner walls of the aorta and the membrane at least partially occludes the aorta thereby increasing cerebral perfusion. The frame can include one or more anchors to aid in maintaining the device in position against the arterial blood flow pressure.

In another embodiment, the membrane is biodegradable such that upon insertion of the device, the membrane provides partial occlusion of the aorta to increase cerebral blood flow. As the membrane biodegrades, cerebral blood flow gradually returns to a normal state. The frame of the device can then be removed.

In a further embodiment, the expandable frame is a mesh tube with a membrane extending across at least part of a first end of the tube. In some embodiments, the second end of the tube is covered by a mesh or other filtering means.

In use, the expandable filter device is inserted into the aorta and expanded such that the membrane extends across the aorta to partially occlude the aorta and increase cerebral blood flow. In some embodiments, the membrane is at least partially permeable to blood. In other embodiments, the membrane has an opening to allow a limited amount of blood flow through the device. In one embodiment, the opening is sized to receive a catheter, and the downstream end of the device has one or more openings sized to receive a catheter. A catheter can traverse the filter device to provide access to arteries and organs upstream of the filter device.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

FIG. 1 shows an embodiment of a filter device according to the present invention.

FIGS. 2-4 show additional embodiments of filter devices according to the present invention.

FIG. 5 shows a filter device according to the present invention in place in a vessel.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

The filter devices disclosed herein are characterized by their ability to withstand high arterial blood flow rates for an extended time and their ability to expand and contract with the wall of the aorta. In some embodiments, the devices are made of a material that is impermeable to blood such as Teflon or nitinol. The devices can have an anti-thrombogenic coating, such as heparin or Carmeda® BioActive Surface (Carmeda Inc., US). In other embodiments, the devices are made of a material that is permeable to blood, such as a mesh, woven material, or a thin polymer. All or a part of the device can be made of a biodegradable material. The device is collapsible and expandable and can be delivered surgically, endoscopically, or percutaneously with cannulas or intravascular catheters. In one embodiment, the device is introduced through the femoral artery. In another embodiment, the device is introduced through the brachial artery.

The device can be left in the aorta permanently or the device can be removed after temporary placement. In addition to or instead of a friction fit of an expandable frame, the device can include one or more anchoring mechanisms, such as sutures, surgical clips, hooks, loops, spikes, pins, or adhesives. The device can be of any shape, such as conical, frustoconical, ogival, cylindrical, hemispherical, or modifications of such shapes. The device can be self-expanding or is can be expanded mechanically such as by a balloon. Self-expanding devices can be made of a shape memory metal such as nitinol. In one embodiment, the device is flexible and expandable to fit a variety of vessel sizes. In another embodiment, the device is sized for a specific vessel. Multiple devices of varying sizes can be packaged together.

The method of the invention involves the temporary partial occlusion of arterial blood flow and resulting diversion of blood flow to the brain. The device of the invention is inserted into the aorta at or below the aortic arch and above the femoral arteries. In one embodiment, the device is placed in the aorta in the region of the renal arteries. In another embodiment, the device is placed in the aortic arch below the common carotid artery and braciocephalic trunk. In a further embodiment, the device is placed in the celiac trunk. In a still further embodiment, the device can be placed in the vena cava.

A membrane covering at least part of a first portion of the device serves to partially occlude the vessel. In some embodiments, the membrane is at least partially permeable to blood. The level of permeability and/or surface area that is permeable to blood can be adjusted to vary the amount of occlusion and thus vary the amount of blood flow diverted to the brain. In other embodiments, the membrane has one or more openings. In these embodiments, the membrane may or may not be partially permeable to blood. The number and size of the openings can be varied to determine the amount of blood flow diverted to the brain.

In a first embodiment, a filter device for temporary partial occlusion of an artery is provided as shown in FIG. 1. The device 10 includes a frame 20 having a first portion 12 and a second portion 14, and a membrane 30 disposed over the first portion 12. The membrane 30 is attached to the frame 20 by any suitable means including sonic or laser welding or adhesive bonding. In some embodiments, the membrane 30 is at least partially permeable to blood. The membrane 30 can be biodegradable. In some embodiments, the biodegradable material is selected to degrade over a desired time range from a very short time to a very long time after the device is inserted. In one embodiment, the membrane 30 is made of polyglycolide. In another embodiment, the membrane 30 is a thin membrane with one or more laser- cut holes to allow blood flow. The thin membrane can be made of poly(dioxanone). In the embodiment shown in FIG. 1, the membrane 30 has a single opening 40 substantially centrally located. Alternatively, the opening 40 can be located off- center, or the membrane can have multiple openings. The number, size and position of openings 40 in the membrane 30 are selected to achieve a desired amount of blood flow diversion to the brain.

In some embodiments, the frame 20 includes multiple support members, such as struts 50. The struts 50 can be compressible, expandable, or flexible. The frame 20 is at least partially expandable to conform to the lumen of a vessel. In one embodiment, the frame 20 is made of a super elastic material such as nitinol. In other embodiments, the frame 20 is made of titanium, Teflon, stainless steel, ceramic, polymers, or mixtures of such materials. In still further embodiments, the frame 20 is made of a mesh or woven material. In some embodiments, the second, or downstream, portion of the frame 20 forms a filter to capture emboli and/or fragments of the biodegradable membrane.

In another embodiment, shown in FIG. 3, the frame 220 is a mesh tube 270. In a still further embodiment, shown in FIG. 4, the frame 320 is solid. In embodiments with an open frame structure, such as those shown in FIGS. 1-3, the frame 20 can be covered with a permeable material 400, such as a mesh, netting, or . membrane to provide an additional filtration mechanism. In some embodiments, a permeable material 400 covering the frame 20 provides an additional mechanism to increase the occlusion of the artery and increase the blood flow to the brain.

In devices having a tapered, angled, or cone shape, such as those shown in FIGS. 4, 2, and 4, at least the first end 12, 1 12, 312, is expandable. In one embodiment, shown in FIG. 2, the frame 120 includes a flexible or expandable band or ring 190 on the first portion 112. The flexible ring 190 can aid in attaching the membrane 130 to the frame 120. In another embodiment, the flexible ring 190 is attached to the frame 120 and the membrane 130 is attached to the ring 190. One or more anchors 160 can be included to aid in securing the device in the vessel. The anchors 160 can be hooks, spikes, loops, pins or any other protrusion sufficient to secure the device in the vessel. In one embodiment, the anchors 160 are mechanically retractable. In another embodiment, the anchors 160 are made of a deformable, flexible, or super elastic material, and are removable from a vessel wall by compressing or folding the frame 20. The anchors 160 can be attached to the frame 20, struts 50, ring 190, or permeable material 400.

FIG. 5 shows a partial occlusion device 510 in place in the aorta. The device 510 includes a frame 520 made up of struts 550. A first portion 512 of the frame 520 is covered by a membrane 530 with a central opening 540. Anchors 560 extend from the first portion 512 of the frame 520 into the vessel walls 500 to secure the device 510 against blood flow, which is indicated by the arrow.

A mixture of carbon dioxide and oxygen (CO2/O2) can be administered to the patient before, during, or after insertion of the filter device to provide additional blood flow to the brain. Enriching the blood content Of CO2 while maintaining a high oxygen level causes blood to be shunted to the brain.

Although the foregoing invention has, for the purposes of clarity and understanding, been described in some detail by way of illustration and example, it will be obvious that certain changes and modifications may be practiced with will still fall within the scope of the appended claims. Moreover, it will be understood that each and every feature described for any given embodiment or in any reference incorporated herein, can be combined with any of the other embodiments described herein.
